Foreign Affairs PS calls for UN reforms

30 May 2014, 10:12

Nairobi - The Foreign Affairs and International Trade Principal Secretary, Karanja Kibicho, has told a gathering of ministers from Non-Aligned states that urgent reforms were needed at the United Nations Security Council.

Kibicho said the current composition of the council did not reflect the principals and aspirations of the charter of the United Nations for a fairer world.

He said that recent experiences in the Security Council’s decision- making processes on critical issues in the maintenance of international peace and security had proved that the current composition of the council required a major reform.

Kibicho said Kenya will continue to negotiate for the appointment of an African member states to the United Nations Security Council during the elections to be held in October 2014.

Meanwhile, he is in Algiers, Algeria where he is leading the Kenyan delegation to the 17th Ministerial Conference of the Non Aligned Movement (NAM).  

The conference brings together a group of states that are not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc.

Kibicho argued Africa remained unrepresented in the permanent membership and under- represented in the non- permanent membership of the Security Council yet 75 percent of issues under considerations by the Security Council continued to relate to the continent.
